When I think about summertime I think of these things: carefree afternoons, wild adventures discovering the world around us and fun. Does that happen? Sure, in the beginning of the summer we all had a grand old time but as the summer dredges on I’m losing steam in the fun department. Don’t worry though. Netflix has me covered!

Dragons Race to the Edge. Netflix

This summer, Hiccup and Toothless, from the critically acclaimed How to Train Your Dragon films are embarking on unparalleled adventures in the all-new Netflix original series Dragons: Race to the Edge.

Soaring beyond their home on the island of Berk in search of new dragons, Dragons: Race to the Edge introduces some of the most exciting dragons yet, each with its own amazing abilities — shock waves, cannon balls and fire blasts, just to name a few.

With the magical Dragon Eye, an artifact Hiccup finds aboard an abandoned ship, Hiccup learns there is more outside the confines of Berk, and that a little curiosity and determination can make every day an exciting journey. In Hiccup’s own words, “this changes everything.”
